    Depends on how it hits, strait, not a problem. at an angle, get a new one.

      depends on where you hit it, how tall it is.

        Most companies recomend inspecting the arrows after each shot for cracks or dings you can slightly bend the arrow shaft buy hand if you hear or see it spliting throw it out if not further inspect the shaft to make sure and your good to go also make sure the arrows are properly spined to match the weight and draw length of bow youe shooting and most importantly have fun and live the outdoor dream!

            Only the cheap ones. Do yourself a favor and buy great arrows that will last for awhile. They will pay for themself .

              No, the tree should be fine.

              (But the arrow is history)

                carbor arrows generally do not shatter. But it could easily affect the arrow flight so be careful using it again.

                  I've never seen one shatter from a tree. I have seen one hit a tree and unscrew the broadhead. The arrow was on the ground and the broadhead was stuck in the tree.

                    i have hit trees and never shattered an arrow, if you do hit a tree with one,before you shoot it, flex it and make sure it dont have a crack in it.
